    • Being able to convert handwritten text on iPad OneNote to text

      Being able to convert handwritten text on iPad OneNote to text. It seems to be available on PC tablet/hybrid version, why not iPad? Would be even better now with apple pencil of course!

      • How about a page size option.

        How about a page size option. It’s crazy trying to print out hand written notes. At least allow for an a4 guide so we can keep our notes to a page size .

        • Sync hand writing notes with audio recording on iPad

          I have used Onenote on the surface pro 4 and loved it. But the experience on the Ipad Pro is lacking a major feature: audio recording while taking notes + sync playback with the note taking. When you start the audio record in Onenote on the Ipad you can’t do anything else... Is there something I’m missing? If not, Microsoft please address this! Otherwise this is a great app and I love being able to move from the Ipad to my Pc and find all of my notes.

          • paper size options

            I wish I could choose page sizes like A4. Infinite note is great but sometimes it’s confusing. I use onenote on a laptop, a smartphone and an ipad and 100% scale is different on each devises. when I edit something on the laptop it’s wide and on the smartphone it’s narrow with 100%. I need universal size.

                      • Bring ink math assistant to iPad

                        Please bring the Ink Math Assistant from the windows store edition to iPad. There are no real good math inking apps on iPad yet. Being able to graph handwritten functions or converting them to text would be super useful!

                        • Please support pressure sensitivity and "Pencil" for Apple Pencil

                          It's obvious that Apple Pencil is pressure sensitive. When I'm writing with Surface Pen, the things written look natural, but on iPad, it doesn't. This makes me want to give up using OneNote cause the inequality of the experience across the platforms.

                          Also, there are only pen and highlighter in the iOS version, but the Windows version has an additional pencil option. Things written in pencil are displayed as pen on iOS.

                            • Integrate Outlook Task flags into OneNote iPad App

                              I use OneNote for note taking with my iPad and Apple Pencil.
                              In a meeting I would like to tag something I have written as a task that I can later view in Outlook. I can do this when I get back to my computer, but this is inefficient. My productivity would further boosted if I could simply tag the item on my iPad while I am taking notes.

                              Please include this feature moving forward.

                              • Don't make me press "Ok" to "Turn Off Airplane Mode or Use Wi-Fi to Access Data" every time I open OneNote in airplane mode!

                                I know I'm offline.
                                I want to use OneNote.
                                But OneNote pops up a modal dialog saying "Turn Off Airplane Mode or Use Wi-Fi to Access Data" every time I open OneNote while being offline.
                                It's very very annoying.

                                If that message is important, show it in a non-obstrusive way somewhere at the bottom of the screen.

                                Don't make it a modal dialog and don't force me to press "Ok" dozens of times a day.

                                There are use cases where the user is not online and still wants to use OneNote.

                                There are also use cases where people aren't online…

                                  Please bring out an ink to text feature so we can convert our notes into a typed document if needed. Ink to text for mathematical equations would be amazing as well although that is a little more complex to do. However, the ink to text is almost mandatory at this point as all other microsoft devices such as the surface pro have this... One note should be the same through out all platforms. Atleast for the most basic featuresAtleast

                                    • Say what iOS promised over 4 years ago, make note taking on OneNote for iOS able to convert writing to text.

                                      It would be great to use the full functionality of Microsoft OneNote on an iOS device. (like handwriting conversion to text). This is an old subject that keeps on coming back.

                                        Have a view only option, so that when reading from ipad, you won't accidently touch the screen and the textbox pops up.

                                        • Mind map functionality in OneNote

                                          Mind maps are great for note taking and structuring ideas. Having this ability in OneNote would make OneNote THE place to take notes be that in text paragraphs, picture, annotations or mind maps!
